KLM announced that it plans to resume operations for 95% of its European airline network, and serve again 80% of its intercontinental destinations by August. The company claims to be restarting “gradually and carefully” its operations after the flights reached a “virtual standstill” in April. According to the Flight Global portal, KLM will resume 80% of its European network and 75% of long-haul destinations in July, but less frequently. “KLM chose to restart as many destinations as possible first, in order to offer customers a wide choice, and then increase frequencies and capacity,” said the airline. While half of the carrier’s long-haul flights are currently cargo-only, KLM says that as international travel restrictions are relaxed, “an increasing number of intercontinental flights will take place again starting in July”.
